African Penguin

The African penguin, also known as the jackass penguin and black-footed penguin, is found in southern African waters. The IUCN estimates that only 52,000 African penguins remain in the wild due to human activities like commercial fishing and oil spillages from the petroleum industry. The African penguin is almost exclusive to South Africa, although scattered populations are found along the coast of Namibia.
